There are some rumors floating around that some changes to Warhammer Fantasy are coming, and the one that catches my eye here the most, is that the systems are going to be brought closer together for easier cross over.
Please remember that this is a rumor.

GW is going to reveal some big new project internally soon. He said he and his co-workers speculated that we might actually see both new editions for 40K and WHFB this year with rules altered in a way to get both systems as closely together as possible to make transition for players as easy and attractive as possible. They also speculated that the recent campaign running in the US stores is a test for a similar campaign run with the *new* starter set.
